PrayersPlease add my mum, Paula & my Uncle Bill to your prayer list. There was an accident in my mother's house and they have been hospitalized due to carbon monoxide poisoning. From what information I have received, it sounds like my mum was worse than my uncle. They are currently at UCSD Med Ctr and both have been through a session in their hyperbaric chamber. My mum was intubated at first and my uncle wasn't, but both are on oxygen. My mum is awake and somewhat coherent according to my brother. Thankfully he lives near her and with them being at UCSD, it is even better as he actually lives in San Diego. One of my cousins is down for my uncle. Since he is a doctor, he can get a bit more information about the two of them.
My mum was just up visiting my uncle for a week and then he came down with her for three weeks. My mum was doing so much better since she put my dad in a home for his Alzheimer's. Her health had really gone down hill because she was his sole caretaker. She had really turned around since November. I was in the process of making travel plans for June to see her. I will definitely be going now.
